As an avid true crime podcast consumer, I was excited to listen to something done in a different format. While I like the initial concept, the content could have easily been fit into 2-3 episodes. Instead, dozens of lengthy facts are repeated each episode, sometimes multiple times, oddly placed interviews with little relevance, and audio that the host “man-splains” to you.
And at the end of each episode the host lets you know the podcast was done with a grant given to him. Yet each episode is plagued with half a dozen or more oddly timed or placed ads that seem disingenuous (oh yeah, Paul? You use Madison Reed? Mm hmm ok). Very off putting and I’m going to have to force myself to push past where I’m at in episode 4. But after reading other reviews, apparently it only gets worse. Ugg.
